Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce Event

Hello Senior Community. As part of being involved in the community, we are actively involved with the Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber had an event that was hosted at Ravenscroft. They have weekly concerts, fantastic food and a wonderful building that is like no other in Phoenix. Ravenscroft is definitely worth a visit to see how a local musician and his wife is giving back to the community. Great job Ravenscroft.

Thank You for Stepping Up, JC!

Sometimes, someone steps up to help and they should be recognized for doing so. JC was at his home doing personal chores. When we phoned him to say that a client has an emergency and we need your help, JC did not hesitate to say I’ll do it. We offer what’s called Bonu$ Reward Points. This is when an employee does something extraordinary, they win points that can later be turned in for cash rewards at Target, Starbucks, Bed Bath and Beyond, Walmart and the likes. JC will receive both a financial bonus and Bonu$ reward point$ for his efforts in helping over the weekend. Thank you JC for stepping up to help. We Heart you at Golden Heart.

We Are Here for Your Home Care Needs!

Hello Senior Community. As we all know, Covid had an effect on caregivers going to school. All schools were closed for some time and some are just now ramping up. Please see the attached comment by the CEO of HCAOA, “The workforce shortage is more than just a crisis for home care. It is a crisis for our country, its growing older population, and their families who are struggling to find the care they need to keep their loved ones safe and at home,” said Vicki Hoak, CEO of the Home Care Association of America. This is a real fact for the industry.

We would like the community to know that we are staffed. We have enough caregivers to handle every client we have and more. So if you need assistance with home care, please feel free to contact Golden Heart Senior Care at 480.330.1191. We can definitely help with all of your home care needs.

Caregivers are Heroes!

Hello Senior Community. As I was walking into a rehab center, I noticed this sign. This sign got me to thinking. The work of a healthcare professional really is special and important. All caregivers need a little or a ton of this sign in their system. Caregivers really are heroes. Thank you for what you do caregivers. We need you to keep a certain segment of the population safe and independent. We couldn’t do it without you.

STROKES

Hello Senior Community. Today, I read an article by Beaumont Stroke Center that talked about STROKES, symptoms and reacting that is important to share. There is an easy way to assess if a stroke has occurred. The test is called FAST. This is not a full sage test. This is a test that The Heart Association promotes as a way of detecting stroke symptoms. This is the assessment that goes with the acronym FAST. F- is for facial drooping. Look at the subject to see if there is drooping of the face. Ask the person to smile. A is for arm weakness. Ask the subject to raise their arms above their head. Does one are have more numbness or weakness than the other. S is for stability. Ask the person able to stand. Are their motor skills as they were prior to your concern. Then T stands for talking. Does the subject appear to be slurring words or have difficulty say a sentence like the sky is blue.

Identifying and reacting to any of these symptoms quickly can be crucial to achieving proper treatment for a subject experiencing a stroke. Please remember it is important to react FAST by calling 911.

The acronym FAST can be an important factor to assisting a stroke victim. Knowing the symptoms and reacting quickly is very important to addressing long term symptoms.
